First World Problems: Did You Smell Something?

We’ve recently started going to food swaps.  Last time we had a visit from the Marshmallow Fairy and got delectable Salted Carmel Marshmallows!  They are beyond phenomenal in hot cocoa or plain.  As such, when we heard they were going to be at the food swap in Winnetka, we knew we had to schedule it […]

Salted Apple Sliver Cake

Around the holidays, we tend to go big.  Usually this  means a lot of work for the payoff of great flavors.  Yet, this time around we wanted to keep it a little simpler.  Certainly there are a few components to this dish, but altogether it is a cake with fruit filling and frosting.  Not too […]

Spiked Dutch Apple Pie Minis

Did you notice that we like apples?  Apples are a go to fruit in our family.  There are banana allergies.  Plus the usual gamut of dislikes towards certain fruits.  Apples are generally the beloved fruit to all of us.  Up there with peaches and nectarines which is an entirely different discussion. So, yet again we […]

Fresh Apple Galette

It’s finally FALL y’all!  I am so excited it’s here.  I’ve been waiting all summer long for it to get here.  Don’t get me wrong, I like summer too.  But fall means fresh apples!  I love apples almost as much as I love strawberries and my love of strawberries is legendary! I like the super […]

Spiked Caramel Apple Cider Recipe

Nothing says fall to me like a hot caramel apple cider.  The caramel makes the apple cider buttery and the perfect fall drink.  That and I just love everything with caramel in it. I thought to myself what could make it better?  Enter Spicebox whisky.  A shot of this whiskey perfectly compliments the caramel apple […]

Wholesome Wednesday: French Apple Coffee Cake

Original I found a pretty beat up old copy the Antoinette Pope School Cook Book published in 1955 at an estate sale.  The covers were falling off and it looked pretty bad.  I’d never heard of the Antoinette Pope School, but there was a location in downtown Chicago at 316 N Michigan Ave.  There was […]

Wholesome Wednesday: Apple Pie Coffee Cake

I absolutely love any baked goods with fresh fruit in them.  And apples are a big favorite.  A definite no-brainer to alter this old coffee cake recipe to include apples instead of blueberries.  I mean what could be better than coffee cake and apple pie for breakfast?  Unless there’s chocolate thrown in there somewhere I […]
